    Heres my new Suhr classic T (hope it's ok that it's not a fender - my other tele is!!) it's a really big deal for me (I won't be able to order a custom guitar again!) so I was super excited when it arrived..

    Maple cap, chambered alder body ,African rosewood board and 'baked' maple neck..

    This guitar sounds great! Woody and dark but with a bit of bite - pretty much exactly what I wanted.. If anyone us interested ill put more (better) pics up later :)

    I've only done one gig with it so far and I'm liking .. Starting to feel like home already :)

    Congratulations on a beautiful guitar! I'd love to see more pics of that stunner and hear of the spec's.....pickups, neck radius, etc. Lovely guitar!

    I had a BSB vintage spec Classic T once - she was superb. I only sold her because I learned I don't like compound radius necks with a $2200 guitar :) otherwise she was a one piece swamp ash body that weighed in a 6.75 pounds. She was a really nice guitar. It was one of the most in tune sounding guitars I have ever played.

    Congrats!

    Very nice! I just became a big fan of the SUHR T-Style. Picked up a pro series T2 last week. Very easy to get along with. Well done!.

    cheers guys! Im REALLY pleased with it :) Ive got a gig later but ill post pics soon..
    specs: 60's C neck shape, compound 9-12 radius fretboard with 'medium' frets.I thought going from my 62 RI to this would be really weird but its not, it feels very comfortable and i can now bend with out fretting out! Chambered body means its really lightweight and has a nice acoustic ring to it. I had the lip of the bridge filed down so i don't hit it when using pick n' fingers. Suhrs classic T pickups which so far sound great - really big and warm sounding.

    As i said I've only used it live once (ad again tonight) but first impressions are good! Thanks for indulging my showing off, im hoping tis will be 'the one' for me...

    I'm more of a "vintage style" guy, but I got to admit that is one pretty top. That thing looks like it plays like butter! Very nice. Enjoy.

    Congrats. Great choices with specs and such, love the top.
    Looks like a great recipe.

    Prepared also to be dazzled and amazed over time as you discover how remarkably stable the roasted maple neck is, made further awesome by the contribution to resonant tone it makes.
    I have a GG Antique Modern which features a roasted maple neck - outstanding.

    Congrats!!! It's a beauty, don't apologize for it not being a Fender....You can't go wrong with any name on the headstock as long as you love it:)

    Plus how could you go wrong with a Suhr anyway....
